Not only are the USC Trojans trying to close a highly ranked recruiting class, but they are also in a battle for wide receivers coach Tee Martin.

Icon SMIAfter a year of working with Marqise Lee and Robert Woods, could WR coach Tee Martin head back to Tennessee?
According to reports, Martin is being pursued for a similar position at Tennessee under new coach Butch Jones. And this is no ordinary offer. Martin, of course, was the quarterback of the Volunteers' national championship team in 1998 and would be considered a very popular choice among Vols fans.

Martin and his family flew to Knoxville on Monday for a chance to meet with Jones.

“Today was more about getting to know each other,” Martin told the Knoxville News Sentinel. “I could tell they were headed in the right direction.”

Martin told the News Sentinel he would fly back to Los Angeles on Tuesday to consider the offer. The Trojans do not practice this week as players are taking finals.

Martin has spent one year as the receivers coach at USC, a season in which Marqise Lee won the Biletnikoff Award as well as the Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Year.
